Niagara University Renames, Repurposes Residence Hall to Enhance Student Learning
One of the Tudor-style residences at Niagara University has been named to honor a longtime partner and supporter of the institution.
What was once known as Varsity Village House No. 2 is now called the Statler Hospitality House, a tribute to the Buffalo-based Statler Foundation, which for decades has supported Niagara University through funding for scholarships, programs and capital improvements.
Positioned centrally on the university’s campus, the two-story residence will be renovated in preparation to house a select group of students who are studying in Niagara’s acclaimed College of Hospitality and Tourism Management. The students will gain experiential learning opportunities with the university’s Center for Conferences and Events.
The Statler Hospitality House will open this fall.
